Long ORANGE scarf

My life is busy. Pack up the house, pack up the classroom, take care of the girls, teach my class, and be in charge of most of the end-of-year activities for the entire fifth grade. Ha. There are a few things I'm behind in posting.

First off,

Happy Mother's Day,
Mom and Janet!



This last week was Teacher Appreciation Week. I received quite a few lovely gifts from my students.




The strawberries were delicious.

One of my room moms made this for my door--well, it was actually too big for the door so she put it on the wall.



"Mrs. Wampler,

You know we've had a jolly time being in your fifth grade class this year! We've loved meeting your little chiclets and mastering poptropica.com. Our Nova class has helped us make good choices now and later. It's been crazy Fun Dip-ing and Twizzler-ing our brains into our new math book and timings.


We will be fireballs next year when we score so high! We started this year as airheads but now we are smarties! Our reward parties are our PayDays. Now the school year rolls over and we'll take 5 for the summer before we look to middle school.


This year was definitely not a dud! We hope you've been paid 100 grand for all you've done for us this year! Love your 5th grade Goobers. P.S. Thanks for all the Extra help--you've taught us good and plenty!"


Congratulations, Britta!

Britta had her second baby on May 6, 2010, at 9:12 AM (Or 9:14...I heard both...)

Congratulations, Heather!


Heather graduated with her bachelor's degree in Mechanical Engineering.


Doesn't she look excited?


When everyone was down for the graduation, we took the chance to get a few family pictures.



Chris also discovered a new toy at the park.


Megan seemed a little iffy about the whole thing.

That candy poster is CUTE! The things I miss about being a teacher.... teacher appreciation week is for sure one of them.

It was 9:14. I wish it were 9:12, that'd be 2 minutes less pain! ha ha.

Your group family pictures were adorable! I love the idea of getting pictures on the tracks.

So, I don't understand the title of the post. What does "Long ORANGE scarf" mean in relation to what you posted?

Chris and Laura said...

I always use long scarves when I have a post with lots of random things. I chose orange because it was Mother's Day. ;)

I'm trying really hard not to look into the fact that I received NOTHING for teacher appreciation week. Not a dang thing.

I love the pictures of Chris in that funny seat thing at the park. Carson and I always get a hoot out of that thing when we play at that particular park.
